WAAAAAY under-rated.. This puppy flies in my book. I love the details in the hills/trees. But the competition was steep nonetheless. This just made my day...

That's some beautiful processing you did, to bring out those rich colors and the lovely DOF. The rule of thirds served you well too. Congratulations on your ribbon and your beautiful photo of a beautiful scene.

Amazing sky, beautiful light, and adventure sports tend to do well here. A winning formula indeed (I smell top ten!). Were it not for the dark corner at the bottom left you would have scored a 9 or ten from me. As it is you'll have to settle for an 8.

Well done.

wooww great sky, i know it was out of your control but his placement right on the edge of the cloud seems kind of strange because the clouds have so much wonderful texture its almost like hes in the way of the photo instead of a wonderful point of focus for the photo

Finally a decent entry in this snapshot filled challenge. This is wonderfull exposed and composed. Beautiful work.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This is pretty cool, but I don't like the exposure. It is too dark in some areas. This is advanced editing so I think you could have processed a couple of times for better dynamic range.
